Meet Our Talented Team 

Dedication and Trust

We are very lucky that our dental team has many years combined experience in dental hygiene and assisting with patient care. But even more importantly, they bring a passion for excellence in what they do. Each one of our team members brings something special to what our patients experience while they are in our office. 

Dr. Perry and his team value ongoing education and regularly attend continuing education courses and trainings. Listening to patients and understanding their needs before doing any treatment is our model. We want your dental visits be as pleasant and pain-free as possible, and that process starts with clear communication.

Melissa – Lead Patient Coordinator

Hello, my name is Melissa and am Dr. Perry’s Practice Manager.  I am originally from Southwestern Virginia but have lived in Wake Forest for many years. I have worked in all aspects of the dental field. I started my dental career as a dental assistant in 1994. I love being a part of our amazing team and giving our patients the attention and care they deserve. When I am not helping build beautiful smiles you can find me either baking something tasty in the kitchen or at the beach.


Crystal – Lead Dental Assistant

Hi, I’m Crystal. Born and raised in Eastern North Carolina, I moved to Raleigh in 2006. I graduated from the Wake Tech Dental Assisting program in 2008 and have been working as a Certified Dental Assistant since. I absolutely love dentistry and have a true passion for patient care, education and connection. The mouth is a gateway to our overall health! In my free time I enjoy traveling, reading and spending time with family and friends.


Holly – Patient Coordinato

My name is Holly, and I have been a patient here for over 20 years. I have always appreciated the family atmosphere of the office. So, when I was approached about joining the team, I jumped at the chance. I love it! 

Nicole – Patient Coordinato

Hello, my name is Nicole! I originally grew up in Southern California and moved to North Carolina in 2015.  I have loved North Carolina ever since.  Hockey plays a big part of myself and my husband Skylar’s life.  We recently got two new additions to our family; Frodo and Bilbo Baggins, our baby kittens.  I have been in dentistry for over a year now, and have loved it ever since the beginning.  I thoroughly enjoy helping people and making our patients feel at home, safe, and happy with their dental care.  I am very proud to work with such a loving, caring team where quality care is ESSENTIAL to this practice. 

Anne Catherine – Hygienist

I’m Anne Catherine, and I attended Dental Hygiene School at Guilford Tech in Jamestown NC. I have been a hygienist for over 25 years. I love building long term relationships with patients. One way of doing this is by helping patients successfully overcome dental apprehension. I especially enjoy educating patients about the essential role good dental health plays in overall physical health. The mouth is a window to the body and a bright smile is worth a thousand words.

David – Hygienist

Hi, I’m David!  I was born and raised right here in Raleigh and graduated from the Dental Hygiene program at UNC Chapel Hill.  Having been a long-time patient of the practice, I was excited at the opportunity to join the team.  I strive to provide quality care for each patient.  One aspect of providing care that I appreciate is helping patients to learn how to improve and maintain their oral health, as a healthy mouth and a healthy body go hand in hand.


Susan – Hygienist

Originally from the Outer Banks, I received my Bachelor of Science Degree from UNC- School of Dentistry and have practiced in Raleigh ever since. My favorite part of this profession is patient education and individualized patient care. I love teaching patients about good oral health and trying to identify the exact product to help them improve their smile. Having a strong desire to serve the community, I volunteer regularly at dental clinics providing free dental care to the underserved.

Following my passion for education, I recently earned a master’s degree in education from NCSU providing me the opportunity to be an adjunct faculty at the dental school.  Investing in the lives of the next generation of dentists and hygienists was fun for me. Outside the office, I enjoy traveling, cooking, and spending time with my new grandson.

Laura – Dental Assistant

Hi, I’m Laura. I was born and raised in Raleigh, NC. I graduated from the Wake Tech Dental Assisting program in 2019 and have been a Certified Dental assistant for 3 years. In my free time I enjoy spending time with friends and family, traveling, and trips to the beach. I love dentistry and having the opportunity to help our patients achieve a confident and healthy smile.
